Tips to Spend Affordable Vacation for Backpackers in Australia
Australia is an ideal destination for backpackers all over the world. This secluded continent supplies various kinds of adventures as well as modern lifestyles and tasteful cuisines. Yet, visiting Australia is not cheap at all because visitors have to spend $9 AUD only to get a glass of beer. It is wiser to get ready for some money-saving tips before visiting Australia, but if Australia is the only place someone desiring to visit (it is indeed should be visited), he/she should have extra budget kept safely in the pocket.
Think about the Flight
People may think there’s nothing to do with the flight for they can have any flight they like towards Australia with almost the same prices, and this is half true. Still, there are certain periods in which almost all flights in and out Australia conduct shocking discount and special offers. Such period exists during September until November, the most quiet period for every flight in Australia. So, no matter what airline people choose to flight to Australia, choosing the right moment to flight is also crucial for money-saving.
Think about the Accommodations
Staying in a five-star hotel will of course cost much more money than staying in any unrated hotel, but how if the backpackers still found the unrated hotel expensive. There is another option to stay in Australia for less money than book a room in a hotel – camping. No one will complain about camping rather than staying in hotel as long as they can save more than $60 AUD per day, especially backpackers. For those who don’t like camping may choose to stay in the hostels for about $22 until $36 AUD, a little more expensive than camping in a campsite which cost about $5.
Think about the Transportation
Another thing backpackers should think is the transportation. Australia provides the visitors with domestic flights ready to take passengers anywhere around Australia faster. However, booking a flight to get around Australia helps the backpackers empty their extra savings compare to getting into a bus. Getting into a bus is of course slower than the plane, but people can enjoy sightseeing while they’re on the bus. Surprisingly, in some regions on the West coast, flying is cheaper than taking a bus, so it is better for the backpackers to get more information about the prices of flight and bus ticket in Australia.
Through carefully organizing trip to Australia, a lot of money can be saved without easing the pleasure of visiting splendid places in Australia.
